Couldn't Have Said it Better

If you missed Sen. Obama's speech last night,

I strongly suggest that you google it, you tube it, something, and watch it!

I mean, if neccessary, I can sum it up for you and translate:

He basically said,

"We've been told for decades that we could not and that we would not; those rednecks even think to this day that we cant, all I'll say is 'Yes, we can.'"

Of course, those words aren't word for word, but I think you still get the point ;)


And please, nobody get me wrong and think I'm prejudice or judging people by the color of their skin , just because I use the term "rednecks".

Its just my way in being brutually honest in saying that, yes, there are white people out there that are racist, that judge you and dislike you for having a different color of pigment in your skin, that are very conservative and close-minded, that think that the way they formulate and analyze their opinions is the best way, and in their mind should be the only way...and guess what they also might just happen to have red necks.

And yes, I do dislike their way of thinking.

And yes, there probably are some black people out there and latinos that think that way too..

And still, I dislike their analysis as well!


My point is that most of the people who think that way, are white, may live in the South and probably have rednecks. That's all.

If you disagree or feel I'm being in some way prejudice, all I can say is it's simply my opinion.


Back to Obama,

I couldn't be any happier and excited to have some one different in the white house.

I think that one of the only other past presidents that can compare to him was President Lincoln.

President Lincoln was open to new ideas, different views and knew that there was more than two ways to view a situation; there's infinite.

Obama is the exact same way.

And Obama knows he resembles Lincoln in this sense, because he quoted Lincoln in his speech.

What is that cliche saying?
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?

Something like that...

I believe Obama will follow in his footsteps, and do something for this country to surpass what Lincoln did for this country [primarily for the blacks of our country]...

He will be what a real president is suppose to be.

Not someone we make a mockery of.

Someone to look up to, who is looked at as a leader, who we look to for hope, who will do what it takes to truly make America a country where there is fredom, liberty and justice for all...


Yes, we can.

....

Yes, we did.
